Military Narrow-Gauge Railway Feldban

Medium | 4 hrs

The story of feldban begins in World War I. In August 1916, the Italian Army pushed the Austro-Hungarian Army to the left bank of the Soča (Isonzo) river, cutting its supply route via the Bohinj Railway. As the remaining railways failed to provide sufficient supplies, they promoted the construction of new sections of narrow-gauge railway – feldban (Feldbahn). They connected the battlefield with the railway station at Logatec. From here, the feldban ran along the road to Godovič and then towards Črni Vrh and Lokve, the second part branched off towards Idrija.  On the guided hike you will get to know the section from Godovič to Idrija in the Strug gorge. You will see the tunnel, embankments, supporting walls, cuttings, remains of the feldban bridge and the levelling with the turning point. There, the feldban turned back in the direction to Idrija.
